[ARCHIVED] Juveniles Arrested in CVS Robbery

Juveniles Arrested in CVS Robbery
Suspects involved in earlier Dublin robbery


Four teenagers are in custody following a Friday afternoon robbery of a Danville CVS store.  Danville Police Chief Allan Shields said the incident occurred at approximately 4:53 p.m. on April 17, 2020, when police received a call from an employee of the CVS in the 600 block of San Ramon Boulevard reporting a robbery. The caller stated that two suspects entered the pharmacy, simulated a firearm, and demanded access to the narcotics safe. When employees stated they did not have access, the suspects fled. 


Dublin PD had reported a similar incident two hours earlier and provided a description of the car.  A deputy from the Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff located the vehicle on northbound I-680 near Treat Boulevard and initiated a traffic stop.  Two of the suspects were identified by the victim of the Danville robbery and two were identified from the Dublin incident.  All four have been booked into juvenile hall on charges of robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, and looting.  Looting is a unique charge that is applied when a person enters a building to commit any theft during state of emergency.


Chief Shields said he was pleased they were able to locate and detain the suspects quickly, and praised the efforts of his officers along with officers from Dublin Police Department and the deputies from the Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff.

“This was an excellent example of how police work together to keep the community safe by capturing criminals,” said Shields. “During this ongoing crisis our officers are busy, but rest assured we will continue to aggressively arrest and seek prosecution for those wishing to do harm in our Town.”
